    I have yet to see a patrol officer come in with gloves. Motor's and SAU but never the regular patrol guys.

    I've been told by LEOs that same thing regarding the finger prints on the rear quarter or trunk lid.

    Prints, touch DNA, and making sure the trunk is latched so nobody jumps out of it.

    Just pull the trunk release after he walks past it.

    Hmmm....reach down while a police officer is walking up. I know you're joking but some people might do that. Bad Mojo there.

    I've never seen a trunk release that you couldn't hear from the outside of a car. That would put throw up a red flag for any police officer I know.

    I know safety first, but that’s pretty paranoid.

    I'm sure there are great reasons to do it but with body cams, everything is recorded. (Which I am in favor)

    Things have gone sideways with no indications whatsoever - in a way, better to have "14 eyes open" than to be relaxed and not be ready for anything a traffic stop would bring. So, a little paranoia is a good thing.
